Black Friday 2021 is here. It is at this time of year that you will see many international stores, both online and offline, offering great deals and discounts on a variety of products. Whether you want a phone or a laptop, there are deals on every gadget you can buy. Most stores also launch their Black Friday sales even before the same day. Some also continue to delight their customers with offers until Cyber Monday, the Monday following Black Friday. But how can you take advantage of the best deals available this Black Friday and Cyber Monday from India?
In this week’s episode of Gadgets 360 Orbital podcast, host Akhil Arora chats with our in-house business expert Harpreet Singh to get his answer.
US offline stores including Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are popular for hosting some of the most eye-catching Black Friday deals. The challenge here is to have these products delivered to your home, but there are good options for that. However, you will have to pay customs duties and duties which can sometimes be so heavy and difficult to deal with.
Amazon has also recently started shipping some of its products internationally. This makes it easier for you to choose a product at a discounted price during this Black Friday sale, as the online marketplace calculates all of your shipping and customs charges and shows you the final price. You can choose from a range of phone accessories, audio devices, and clothing, among others. International shipping isn’t very pleasant – and for the most part unavailable – if you want to buy a phone or some other expensive gadget.

You can also make this Black Friday fruitful in India by getting a new virtual good at a reduced price. This can be a subscription to an antivirus or a virtual private network (VPN). Or it could be video games, with all Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, and Epic Games running their own sales. Some of these offers will continue until Cyber Monday.
We’re also talking about the scams taking place online to catch people looking for great deals this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Additionally, we discuss the customs you may need to pay if you get an expensive item. You can listen to all of this by pressing the play button on the built-in Spotify player above.
